What are electrical service panels?

It's always good to know the basics. The power from the electricity company's line travels through a meter (which measures the amount of power consumed) outside the house and passes through a main disconnect switch before entering the panel. The panel may be of varying capacity from 60 to 400 amps. The panel breaks up the supply according to the circuit needs.

Need a service panel upgrade?

Many old houses would have low-capacity service panels of 60 or 100 amps. This leads to regular voltage drops when you try to operate devices that require more power. Regular voltage drops eventually damage sensitive electronic devices. For this reason, and to prevent electrical hazards, it is essential to upgrade the panel to higher capacities of 300 or 400 amps.

Cost of upgrading your panel is lower than purchasing a new one. Make sure you consult our experts at AAAES before you go ahead and upgrade your panel.
